    “Charming property which has been nicely renovated and spacious for 4 people to share comfortably.”

    Well presented and had all the facilities we required. Quiet location, lovely playground 2 minutes away, handy for walks and a short drive to Alnwick. The local shop/service station has a fantastic range of products. ...

    Well presented and had all the facilities we required. Quiet location, lovely playground 2 minutes away, handy for walks and a short drive to Alnwick. The local shop/service station has a fantastic range of products. We had issues getting hot water for the first few days (apart from the electric shower) but the owner was very helpful and came to show us how to operate. Electric heaters are available in all rooms if you don’t want to have a real fire going for heating. The bedding and towels smelt clean and fresh on arrival. The property was clean however needs more attention to detail on window sills for dirt/cobwebs. The door is quite tricky to lock and could do with a bit of attention.

The village makes an ideal base for exploring the Northumberland National Park, Alnwick with its imposing castle (known to millions as Hogwarts School in Harry Potter!), the impressive castle gardens and The Treehouse Restaurant.
